Infor Announces Reseller Agreement with MercuryGate International

Infor announced a reseller agreement with MercuryGate International to bolster transportation management within the existing supply chain portfolio. The agreement will extend the Infor Supply Chain Execution (SCE) application with the leading MercuryGate Transport Management System (TMS). The ability to deliver MercuryGate TMS with Infor SCE will provide a more robust Supply Chain Execution solution for operations of manufacturers, logistic providers and companies with transportation management needs. MercuryGate TMS is a single platform transportation management solution that enables companies to manage their multi-modal, multi-leg transportation across geographies while providing control tower visibility and decision support and managing fully loaded transportation costs. This provides a direct competitive advantage for companies of all sizes from the smallest shipper to the multi-national corporations. MercuryGate's ezClick architecture and configurable dynamic workflow process enable the solution to quickly adapt to fit the requirements of any shipper or logistics service provider. The flexible, easy to use solution offers a rapid time to value and Return on Investment (ROI). MercuryGate TMS enables Infor SCE and enterprise resource planning (ERP) customers to rapidly customize the solution and select the delivery option that is right for them. The sophisticated application architecture and modular approach provides a more extensive layer of integration to create an end-to-end supply chain solution. The delivery options include Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivered in a multi-tenant shared environment or in a single-tenant dedicated environment or as a traditional license model delivered in a secure hosting center or on-site at the client location. The cloud solution enables users to access the system from any browser anywhere in the world, to store and recover data in the cloud and to collaborate with all trading partners across the supply chain. The open architecture of MercuryGate TMS makes for a simple integration to Infor SCE and ERP applications and other Infor and third-party systems including accounting, warehouse management systems (WMS) and legacy platforms.

Infor Announces Infor CloudSuite Financials

Infor announced Infor CloudSuite Financials, a brand new financial management application built for the cloud. Engineered in consultation with some of the consulting firms, CloudSuite Financials is designed to uniquely address the needs of present CFO's and financial professionals instead of relying on decades-old technology and processes. Infor CloudSuite Financials integrates multiple functions traditionally requiring disparate systems into a single suite, including core financial management, treasury applications, close & reconciliation management, business intelligence, and treasury & cash management. By combining these functions into one application, CloudSuite Financials helps eliminate redundant and error-prone steps that require human intervention, and simplifies management of complex businesses with multinational operations and multiple ledgers. At the heart of CloudSuite Financials is Infor ION(R), Infor's purpose-built, lightweight middleware. Infor ION provides integration between a company's financial and operational systems, providing deeper insight and clearer visibility into performance. Through Infor ION, CloudSuite Financials simplifies diagnostics, quickly identifying the operational sources of financial performance information, helping companies become more efficient and profitable. Infor CloudSuite Financials is built for the cloud, with deep analytics and mobility in a multi-tenant environment with support for open source systems. In addition, CloudSuite Financials features a consumer-grade user experience from Hook & Loop, Infor's internal design agency based in its Manhattan headquarters. Infor CloudSuite Financials is slated for release next year.
